And your solution is to give users error messages where they do not
have a problem ?!  What if they the examine the formula and find out
that it is exactly what they wanted?  Your solution would force them
to rewrite their formulas for no good reason.

Again this is like giving an spelling error for "their" because some
users might confuse it with "there".
